We are Licking County Writes!, a group of Licking County writers and people who support them. We came together in 2023, mainly to discuss founding a book festival in Newark.
 
Our mission is to encourage and promote Licking County writers, provide them resources, and build community. We unite readers and writers each year at the Newark Book Fest.
 
We are a volunteer-based LLC looking to become a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in early 2024.
 
If you want to know more about us, and if you are thinking of volunteering, please contact Steph Loughman or John Wiley, co-chairs of LCW!
